  1. I wonder how the NZ authorities will enforce this? All very well to make the bold announcement but if it can’t or won’t be enforced, what’s the point?
  2. Oh no! I just kept dialling and getting the busy signal, hang up call again. Repeat. After an hour of that I finally got the ringing tone. The consultant said she had been able to see how many calls were queued early on but then she couldn’t see anything. So maybe you are in a queue to nowhere?

  4. After an hour of refreshing the Princess website on my laptop and phone as well as calling Princess, I got through calling. I managed to get what I wanted but as the person I booked with said, what would normally take her 4 minutes to do, is taking 20. Hang in there and good luck!
  5. A few reasons not everyone is pulled up, including resources, priorities (narcotics are rightly a bit higher up the list) and that because not everyone is doing the wrong thing it’s not a reason to pull everyone in for examination. You will definitely be selected if you don’t declare your high value goods on return. After all, they know you are coming and it’s like shooting fish in a barrel.
  6. Just remember, by claiming on the TRS, ABF already know you have exceeded your duty free limit. If you choose to smuggle your goods back in (technically this is what you are doing if you avoid paying duty) you can risk having your goods seized. Just because you don’t see it being enforced, doesn’t mean it’s not😉
  7. Could you not just order your drinks through the app and have them delivered to you?
  8. This is exactly what we do. Six bottles each in our cabin bag, even when we are flying to the port. Too easy 😉
  9. Thanks Margo, I’ll start keeping a keen eye out then.
  10. Thanks Mic, that’s what I’ve been doing. Just hoping to narrow things down.
  11. Does anyone have any idea when Princess might release their itineraries for Alaska in 2021? I don’t want to miss the boat again! 😉
  12. Currently on Majestic and just had 4 sea days with origami and quilling offered. About to do 5 sea days so I’ll report in later what was offered on those days. There is the usual Knitters and Knatters get together each day. It seems there has been a much greater emphasis on dancing activities this cruise. I guess activities will depend on who the cruise director is, and that maybe someone different when you are cruising, to the current CD. Late dining - is that traditional? If so, 7.30pm is listed as the 2nd sitting time. Hope that is the info you were seeking? If not, let me know and I’ll get back to you in a few days 😉
  13. I think you mean World Fresh Market Place (buffet). Very easy to get lost in!
  14. I was on Majestic in January, there was a table set up in the Piazza near Vines where drink packages could be purchased. No cup, $7 per day.
